Hi, greetings. Hair in unwanted places like - the face - constitutes hirsuitism. The common cause of this is PCOS apart from hereditary and idiopathic causes. The following will help you. 1. See a qualified dermatologist near you 2. Consider investigations to rule out PCOS 3. Undergo laser hair reduction - its very safe- if done by qualified dermatologists/under their guidance, will require minimum 6-8 sittings, depending on hair thickness and the machine used. 4. Take treatment/ dietary changes/ weight reduction for PCOS management as advised. hope this helps. Further queries can be sent on follow up private chat. Dr Govind Suresh Mittal.
